Be Happy. Be Mindful. Be Here Now.

Wishing Star Pottery grew out of a simple mantra:
Make Art.
Live Simply.
Be Happy.
Dream BIG.

I am a maker of art entwined with love and inspiration. My work consists of functional and decorative ceramics that display words, quotes, poetry, original decal illustrations, hand drawn line designs and textures. My ceramics are both hand thrown on the potters wheel and hand built from slabs of clay. I treasure the feel of clay in my hands, molding and manipulating the earth into timeless pieces that are used, loved and cherished. I take time with each piece I create, honoring it's uniqueness and ensure that it holds the authentic marks of a maker, not a manufacturer. I believe there is a meditation in the process of making. My heart and passions are infused into my creations......my family, my mountains, my bike, my adventures. The words I choose resonate with my soul and are meant to be a conversation with the user. The basic color palate I use is a reflection of my environment; natural, calming, interactive. Nature inspired colors and dynamic shinos play with shape, texture, line designs, images and words to create two distinct bodies of work: simple/modern and organic/rustic.
